What is a good brand of store-bought bassoon reeds? Right now I am using Jones, but they don't sound very good. Also, are there any hand-made reeds that are really good, but not crazy expensive? I am just playing bassoon for a musical, but would prefer to sound good lol.

Thanks,

Abigail

Try Danzi reeds. You can get them online at Miller Marketing, www.millermarketingco.com

I've been recommended to Charles reeds, they have a website, Charlesmusic.com I believe. I haven't actually gotten to ordering any yet, but I've heard many good things about them and they look like a very nice establishment judging by the website. Their reeds are made to order and they can ship right to you or your local shop, I believe.

personally, I love the reeds from RDG. I get a ST.Pertersberg (?) medium-soft (which is more like a medium) then shave it to my likings. They are $20.00 a pop, but well worth it.

I recently purchased these handmade German reeds from a seller on ebay. I can say, in all honesty, that these are the nicest, most responsive reeds I've ever encountered.

For around $50 (for 3 reeds) I think that these are well worth it.

Cheers,
Angharad.
